Homemade Pie Crust -this make double pie crust(single crust just use half of all the measurements) Or and Frozen Pie you prefer.
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, frozen
3/4 cups ice cold water , divided -make sure you read instructions carefully
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar and salt. Using a box grater, grate the cold butter atop the flour mixture. Working quickly, and using your hands, break the butter bits into the flour until they’re evenly distributed and resemble the size of small peas. Add a 50% of the recommended water and mix. The mixture will be shaggy at this point. From here, add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until the dough comes together. Flour your counter and dump the dough onto it. Knead a few times more until it comes together. If making a double pie crust, divide the dough, forming two discs. Wrap the disc(s) in plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour, ideally overnight.
